The paper provides basic information about the concept of Latinism (lexical elements derived from Latin) in Romance languages with the focus on Spanish. It deals especially with the history of penetration of Latinisms (and partly also Hellenisms) into Spanish between the 13th and 20thcenturies. Each defined period of time is characterised by specific tendencies regarding the popularity of Latinisms, the way they were adopted into in Spanish and the semantic fields from which they come. The paper is based on secondary literature.
